Art and Sacred Places: 2004

Overview

We were invited to curate a project at St. Peter's, Brighton, as part of the Art and Sacred Places programme, an ecumenical organisation supporting the interaction between art and religion. The resulting installations by Dan Coombs and Duncan Whitley brought contemporary art techniques such as assemblage and sound art into the Church context to examine the notion of spirituality in today's society. In 2004 we curated Angel, a dramatic work by Rose Finn-Kelcey that was visible 24 hours a day on the facade of St Paul's Church, east London. Angel is documented by an online catalogue, which includes stunning still and moving images of it in situ, responses from the public and essays about the work. Angel was the recipient of the ACE Trust Award for temporary commissions for Art in a Religious Context category.
